Presbyterian Support Otago’s Board Chair, Stephanie Pettigrew (left), and, CEO, Jo O’Neill signed up to complete the Great Naseby Water Race to raise money and awareness for Family Works social services! As a team they ran 60kms (30kms each)!
Mrs Pettigrew said Presbyterian Support Otago was facing one of the biggest financial challenges in its history.
“For the financial year just ended we are about to post our biggest loss ever.”
There are significant funding challenges in the aged care sector, and the organisation relied on those services to help fund their Family Works programme.
Taking part in the ultramarathon was a way to not only highlight the very real challenges of the organisation but also how valuable community fundraising and donations were.
All money raised goes towards Presbyterian Support Otago’s Family Works social services.
It's not too late to contribute to our social services, donate online to show your support, thank you!
